Review: The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin

The Girls in the PictureThe Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nobody writes character-centric historical fiction better than Melanie Benjamin. Her story of Frances Marion and Mary Pickford in the early days of Hollywood is not only entertaining, it's informative and enlightening. I had no idea how much of an influence Frances had on Hollywood. And, for that matter, I didn't realize Mary Pickford was that powerful.

I love the way Melanie Benjamin's mind works, and I'm thankful that she can get what's in her head onto book pages.

Because I enjoyed the Audible version, I should say narrator Kimberly Farr is a fantastic actress and I will definitely listen to other books she narrates.
